THINKING ABOUT THINKING “Hear what Tony has to say”
We often talk about the skills that our young people will need in the future. Adaptive agility, resilience, collaboration and social entrepreneurship feature strongly in the conversation. They are all vital. And yet, there is one major skillset that transcends all others: the ability to think effectively.
If you are serious about teaching your children to think, then you will love this workshop. It will be practical, entertaining, and highly relevant to everyday teaching.
During the session, we will explore questions such as:
How do we generate inquiry?
How can we help children to pose insightful questions?
How can metacognition be built into everyday learning?
What is needed to develop a positive disposition to thinking?
How can we boost the intellectual rigour of any unit?
It’s not just about the quality of their thinking either. As the leading learner in your classroom, your thinking will matter just as much, given that you are modelling your optimistic attitude and thinking quality for them. As part of this workshop, we will explore processes for maximising on your very own cognitive ability.
